Boasting 13 all-weather, state-of-the-art competition rings, an Indoor Complex, more than 1,400 permanent stalls, air-conditioned bathrooms and ample shaded spectator areas, TIEC provides an unparalleled competitor experience.

Guests are welcome to meander through the multi-purpose trails that surround the property, including our White Oak Cross-Country Course and the Glades trails, for a scenic creekside hike. Stay active in our new fitness and recreation center offering CrossFit, yoga, pickle ball courts and more.
The adventure is yours. The springboard is Tryon Resort.
